Outside Bets

Any bet that does not specifically include one of the 38 numbers is known as an Outside Bet.

Outside Bets in Roulette are Red or Black, Odd or Even, Low or High, Columns, and Dozens.

Betting On Color

Red or Black simply means betting on the color of the outcome of the spin. Wins are paid at even money.

Odd or Even bets are same. Wins are based on whether the outcome will be an odd or even number.

Low or High bets mean the player chooses to place bets on whether the number will fall on the numbers 1-18 or 19-36. This is also known as even money bet.

Column bets are made by placing chips at the end of one of the sets of 38 numbers designated by the words “2-1,” which pays back two to one if the outcome falls in the selected column.

A Dozens bet is made by placing chips on the areas separating the numbers into three dozens and means a 2 to 1 payback.

Inside bets

Inside bets are placed on specific numbers or combinations. The total sum of the bets must meet the table minimum and betting options include Straight-up Bets, Split Bets, Street Bets, Corner Bets, and Five Number Bets.

Making a Straight-up Bet means placing chips on one of the 38 number options and the payback is 35 to 1.

A split bet means placing chips on two different numbers adjacent to each other on the table with a payback of 17 to 1 for a win. Street Bets allow betting on three different numbers by placing chips on the outside edge of the chosen row. The payback is 11 to 1.

With a Corner Bet, chips are placed at the intersection of four different numbers with an 8 to 1 payback.

A Five Number Bet only has one betting option, placing chips on the corner intersection of the 0 and 1. To win the payback of 6 to 1, the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2, or 3 must be included in the outcome.
